    PHYSICAL THERAPY MANIPULATION HAS BEEN SHOWN TO HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON LOW BACK PAIN….In a study by Flynn et al, over 90% of the patients who satisfied 4 of the 5 criteria in the Clinical Prediction Rule experienced a 50% or greater reduction in self-reported disability occurring over just two treatment sessions. Other studies have supported this finding, with treatment consisting of manipulation and simple range of motion exercises.

  • Trigger Point Dry Needling
    TRIGGER POINT DRY NEEDLING / INTRAMUSCULAR MANUAL THERAPY is a technique used to treat the neuro-musculoskeletal system based on pain patterns, muscular dysfunction and other orthopedic signs and symptoms.  It is used to treat soft tissue dysfunction such as inflammation, contracture, tissue adhesion, and microcirculation.  The primary goal is to desensitize the supersensitive structures, to restore motion and function, and to hopefully induce a healing response in the tissue.
  • Visceral Mobilization
  • Lumbar and Cervical Mechanical Traction
  • Modalities such as Electrical /Neuromuscular Stimulation, Ultrasound, Iontophoresis
